For some reason, I never thought about the possibility of ear… adornment (err?) aside from actual earrings. Call me old fashioned.
But these “ear cuffs” from jewelry line Ralph and Duchess are… pretty awesome, I must say. The brand’s brain is that of Rochelle Goldberg (and its muses, Ralph and Duchess, the names of her pet rabbits. Aw! ♥) and from what I can tell, this gal knows her stuff.
I like how the cuff incorporates just enough of an edge to intrigue, sans the whole trashy-biker-chick twinge (are you picturing the ear cuffs with the chains? Yeah…). Love. Goldberg gets it right by incorporating feminine flowers into her design, rendering her pieces more Midsummer Night’s Dream than motorcycle. I’d certainly wear one of these!
It looks like the official site for the brand may be experiencing some technical difficulties at the moment (it won’t load for me), but I’ve linked these to another online store where you can purchase (in bronze, not silver, however). But I’m sure it’s only a matter of time before it’s back up and running. I am also sure that there are cheaper versions of the same thing floating around out there (these go for around $120.00)… ETSY anyone?
I could see this trend sticking around for a while… ! ♥
